You are invited to LoveFest August 17 ~ 26

One of the things I love most about SL is that all kinds of interests can be indulged in very unusual ways. 
Case in point:  Every year, a dedicated group of ... dare I say it?... weirdos spend months creating a horrible, frightening, wonderfully bizarre festival to celebrate their favorite author: H.P.Lovecraft 

H. P. Lovecraft was born in 1890 in Providence, Rhode Island, where he lived most of his life. He wrote many essays and poems early in his career, but gradually focused on the writing of horror stories, after the advent in 1923 of the pulp magazine Weird Tales, to which he contributed most of his fiction. His relatively small corpus of fiction--three short novels and about sixty short stories--has nevertheless exercised a wide influence on subsequent work in the field, and he is regarded as the leading twentieth-century American author of supernatural fiction. ~ Amazon bio

If you enjoy science fiction, horror, tentacles, colors, alien landscapes, or things that go bump in the night... and the walls... and the corners... join us for Lovefest!
You will find shopping and gifts in a somewhat unsettling New England town, Live readings, Live music events, a Hunt and much more.  
The festival opens Friday, August 17, @ dusk (7ish) SLT. I will include the LM when the festival site opens.

I will be blogging the event in my DARK BLOG. Please check there for updates and schedules.

Weekend of August 10

What are you planning to do this weekend? It's still too hot to spend much time outside in RL. Here are some of the fantasy SL events you might enjoy:

Fable 3 ~ ends August 26 
Theme is "Once upon a time". Mostly clothing and accessories. Sales items, EXCLUSIVES, and gachas. Gacha Life is running concurrently within walking distance.

Fantasy Gacha ~ August 7- Sept 7
Not as large as usual, but still some fascinating gachas for Fae, RPers and Adventurers.

Mermaid Cove ~ ends August 13
If you haven't visited this one, swim on over there before it closes! For a first-time event, it's very well done. It's hard to find interesting Mer merchandise and this one has everything you need to enrich your ocean experience in one place ~ tails, fins, jewelry, skins... and lots of bikinis! There is a hunt. Clues are given in local chat, which is kind of annoying, but I'm sure that will improve in the future.


Hair ~ Pr!tty Avy [no LM available]
Head ~ Catwa Margeaux 3.2
Skin ~ 7 Deadly S[k]ins Merci
Body ~ Maitreya Lara 4.1
Outfit ~ Legendaire Aisha Dress EXCLUSIVE [Belleza, Maitreya, Slink] *
Shoes ~ Legendaire Aisha Heels EXCLUSIVE [10 colors / Belleza, Maitreya, Slink] *


Nails ~ Cazimi Influence [3 collections sold separately or together in the Pro Palette] *
Shades ~ Haysuriza Eyewear Tokyo
Pet ~ Jian Beagle Pup

*My outfit is available @ Designer Showcase

[QE] Designs for August

[QE] Designs offers some nice new items for both your home and your wardrobe. 

The So-Deer rugs, pillows and wall tapestry are available in the Main store. The tapestry, circular rug and double pillows are on sale for Syndicate Sunday, which technically is the first Sunday of each month, but [QE] weekend sales items are usually available for a week or so... 
The accent rug and single pillow are the prize for the Raise the Roof Hunt which you can find in the store. Each So-Deer item has its own internal texture hud so that you can mix and match them to your heart's content. I'm showing just a few of the possibilities here.


My dress can be found in the [QE] shop at Fable 3. Olympia is available in 8 rich brocade textures sold separately or in a fatpack. Each of the shops at Fable also offers a L$10 special, discounts and some gachas. Fable ends August 26.

Designer Showcase August 5 ~ 31


We usually think of art in the park, but in this case, it's more like art in the cave...and on the pier.  Take a look at the original art on display in Summer's Wind. Some of the paintings are available for sale as well as other unusual art pieces you might want to add to your collections.

I'm posing with a painting and coordinated furnishings from Kandinsky. 
My look comes from the August Designer Showcase. The bright colors are the perfect background for my outfit from 1 Hundred.  Available in 9 colors, I went with basic black. 
I paired it with a cute sunkissed skin from 7 Deadly S[k]ins, jewelry from Moondance Boutique and shoes from Lindy
My nails are Influence from Cazimi. The Pro Palette* hud gives you the option of having mixed colors on your nails, so even my fingernails fit the artistic atmosphere
